Parts of Center Street in Hickory will be closed periodically for repaving beginning Monday.
South Center Street will be paved from Main Avenue to N.C. 127, and North Center Street will be paved from 3rd Avenue to 5th Avenue.
One lane along the street will be open most of the time during the daytime paving project.
Work on North Center Street in front of Frye Regional Medical Center's main entrance may cause closure of the entire street at times. A city spokesperson said that part of the project may be completed at night.
The project is expected to take about a week.
